Obertan won over everyone at Man Utd washing cars!

Gabriel Obertan has won over everyone at Manchester United with the way he went about his club duties while recovering from a back injury earlier this season.

Obertan was given a variety of light duties which included watering hanging baskets, pruning the rose bushes - and even washing staff cars at the Carrington training ground.

Obertan, 20, made his first-team bow last month and his green-fingered chores came to an end but not before he impressed staff.

A United source revealed to The Sun: "It's not very often these days a United first-teamer can ever be seen on manual duties!

"But Gabby is a nice kid and he was only too happy to help out with the older coaches' requests.

"He could give the groundsmen a run for their money with his trimming and lawn skills!"
